Tiffany Stamps said making Greer the third location for Compassionate Care Hospice (CCH) was an easy choice.

“We knew Greer is a growing city and didn’t want to be in Greenville or Spartanburg,” Stamps said. “Greer is between both cities and we decided to come to the “Switzerland of the South”.

CCH has offices in Columbia, where Stamps is headquartered, and in Camden. 

The Greer location, at 110 W. Church Street, held its ribbon cutting ceremony Wednesday.  The office opened in May and has a staff of six nurses, associates and Chaplain Chris Lewis.

Stamps said the decision to locate in Greer was fueled by Volunteer Coordinator Tiffany Corbin having her brother, Dr. John Linebaugh, working at the Village at Pelham emergency room. Another employee had family in Taylors. “We saw how we could utilize our staff and grow in South Carolina at the same time,” Stamps said.

Lewis said he had no expectations as a chaplain.

“Hospice has a negative connotation but it has a positive influence with families,” Lewis said. “We are seeing people who accept that they are facing their last days, and realize when they have reached that place, people are susceptible and open to the biggest question in life and death.”
